https://dyernews.com/honeydue-review/ Honeydue is a personal finance app designed for couples. In this video, we’ll highlight some of the features Honeydue has to offer and how it can help you and your significant other manage your money together.
Getting Started with Honeydue
If you’ve tried out other personal finance apps before, you know that it does take a while to get your accounts connected and have everything set up. Honeydue is no different in that aspect, although the process was pretty painless in my case — I was able to select my bank, enter my information, and have the app pull the appropriate data. As you add accounts, you can also label them as personal or joint accounts. Finally you can select from a number of privacy settings, allowing your partner to see everything, balances only, or completely hide an account’s info from them.
One extra step you’ll want to take with Honeydue in order for it to function as intended is to add your significant other to the account. This is done by entering their e-mail address and inviting them to join you. The app does recommend that you make your profile picture a photo of you before inviting your loved one, just so they know it’s really you when they get the e-mail. Once both of you are set up, you’re ready to explore the rest of the app.
The first page you’ll encounter on Honeydue is called Balances. As that name implies, this is where you can get an at-a-glance overview of all your different bank and credit card accounts. You also have the choice of viewing all of your accounts, just those you’ve labeled as “mine,” or just those you’ve labeled as “joint.” Tapping on any one account will also let you browse recent transactions.
Viewing your transaction activity is actually the first place where Honeydue sets itself apart. See, in addition to the ability to re-categorize any transaction, you can also label them with emojis or make additional notes. Assuming you’ve selected the correct option in your notification settings (more on that later), your partner will then be alerted to your notes or reactions and can respond accordingly.
By selecting a single transaction, you’ll also be provided with a few more selections. The first option is to share the expense with your partner, which is another feature we’ll get into a minute. Here you’ll also have the choice to add a bill reminder. Tapping that option will then allow you to choose a frequency option (monthly, weekly, one time only), who the reminder should go to, and when you’d like your notification to be sent.
Given how much you can do from the Balances section, Activity may seem a bit redundant. In actuality it’s really just a question of how you like your transactions to be organized. While Balance displays your spending for each account, Activity breaks it down by category. It also includes a color-coded circle chart, providing you a visual look at what categories you spend the most on. Other than that, the functionality is similar to Balances: tap a category to see transactions and add reactions, tap that transaction to share expense or set-up a reminder.
As you set up bill reminders, they’ll appear in this section in both a calendar view and as a list. Naturally you can also add reminders from this section. Lastly, from the list view, you can edit upcoming reminders, mark them as paid, or select to skip a reminder until the next due date.
The final section simply titled “More” is actually home to a number of features. The first tab you’ll come across in More is a list of notifications. Speaking of notifications, you can also tap the gear icon in the top right and then select Notification Settings to adjust what types of transactions and updates push through to your phone.
Next to the notifications tab is “Your Banks,” where you can view what banks you’ve linked to your account. Incidentally this tab can come in handy as one of my accounts was recently unlinked for some reason. To repair it, all I had to do was tap and reenter my info — easy as pie.
Perhaps the most interesting section of More is the Split Expenses tab. Here you’ll see a list of transactions that you or your partner have labeled to split and also has the option to post more unpaid debts. This section will keep a running tally of who owes who and provide an overall balance. Should you choose to “settle up” this balance, you can then launch either Venmo or PayPal to do so. Sadly these options don’t really integrate with Honeydue, so you’re really on your own to send the money and then just “mark as paid” when you get back to the app.

Trending videos are any videos that YouTube users are interacting with at a very high rate. Often these videos were recently uploaded (a day or so ago).
